Dating back to 1853, the Bisso family has long been a part of the American industrial maritime and offshore oilfield history. Joseph Bisso began as a blacksmith in the maritime industry in the 1870’s by constructing handmade wooden rowboats which he used to ferry passengers and commodities across the Mississippi River in New Orleans. The human powered rowboats gave way to steam power by 1890 as the BISSO story continued. By the 1940s, BISSO’s third generation was fully engaged in support of the emerging offshore oil and gas industries in the Gulf of Mexico. By 2005, the company’s fifth generation would relocate the headquarters to Houston, Texas, and expand the BISSO footprint abroad. Now well into its second century of continuous service, BISSO has grown substantially from its roots to become a major offshore energy infrastructure contractor. Supported by a team of highly experienced professionals, BISSO continues to adjust to the changing market conditions to support the onshore and offshore energy, petrochemical, LNG, midstream, industrial, construction, fabrication and maintenance services. Industries that we serve as we chart the course for the next generations of Bisso family leadership.
